If one Googles the name from the tattoo, there is a hit on Spokeo.com where the middle initial matches. Not sure if they are connected to this person or not.

Due to the tattoo of "Valenzuela" on his back, this is probably his surname.
His chest tattoos of "W(est) S(ide)" look like prison style tattoos and therefore there may be records of him doing a year or more in prison (probably on the west coast)
The "Mi gordita Sally R. Valenzuela" has praying hands with rosary beads above it; Sally was probably a relative who passed away. Gordita is used as a term of affection among some Hispanics.
The "13" and "XIII" tattoos lead me to believe he was involved with MS-13.

The previous result I mentioned above was out of Mesa, AZ, and per this page it appears that person has also passed away.
EDIT: There's also a hit out of Imperial, CA, just north of El Centro, from 2014, but the middle initial is "A." On my screen it's hard to judge if the tattoo is an "A" or an "R".

Probably not, surenos don't come around here (San Jose) for long of at all. San Jose is the "seat" of northern structure, which has taken over control of the north side from nuestra familia (who's seat is salinas)
This UID has XIII on his neck, he would be PC in our jail. I don't see tattoos on the neck of the guy in the pic.

I think it says "mi jeftia Sally ...." Jefita means mom (or boss but it's slang for mom) but it looks misspelled, which is not uncommon in prison tattoos. I once booked a guy who had "f---- all biCThes" emblazoned across his belly. He was not amused w my peals of laughter, lol.

I didn't know that (I'm an east coast girl), thanks. The UID was a transient though so I don't know if he was from San Jose, just squatting there in the jungle camp, or if he was from CA at all.
The pic of the guy leaving the jungle was from 2014, so is it possible he got tattoos after that?

San Jose has a giant transient population because the cost of living and the drug problem here are both astronomical. The jungle is located next to the Story Road Wal Mart. There are a ton of transient older drug addict Nortenos in the area, a sureno wouldn't be there.
I suspect this UID is from either so cal or so cal by way of Mexico.

He has spider web tattoo on his elbow and on his chest, which I thought meant he did some time. If he did, then wouldn't they have his fingerprints if he were incarcerated in the US? I'm thinking that he didn't do his time here if here if they haven't matched him yet.
Also, in the Sally A. Valenzuela obit, it mentions another Sally as being a sister in law, but no initial.
I couldn't tell if it the middle initial was an A or an R, I'm so bad with fancy script, so thanks for clarifying.All you need is love and. . . .(fill in the blank)

i am in oz so my knowledge of centroamerican gangs active in the USA or the mexico-usa border is...nil
for italians and for some latinoamericans 13 is a lucky number (our bad luck day is "domingo siete", sunday the 7 th)
